We once again held our annual open day on Sunday 19th July and although the weather had looked threatening early on, the rain and clouds soon cleared away to leave us with a beautiful day, during which we raised a grand total of £4508.50!

We would like to thank everyone who turned out to help raise such a fantastic amount of money for the homeless cats.

Christmas fair 2014

We are very pleased to announce that the grand total taken in this year is £1946.89! This has been the best result our Christmas event has ever achieved!


Mother nature was unfortunately not on our side this year and with a tropical down pour half way through the day, our numbers did dwindle a bit. However, this did not detract from the fact it was a superb day for all involved. While we did not beat last year’s earnings, we managed to raise around £4300! This is a fantastic result given the weather and we would like to say a big thank you to all our helpers, supporters and volunteers who made it such a special event!



Having been short staffed and handed this year with a brand new team working together for the first time, the day was a remarkable success!  Everyone banded together to make the day such a triumph and we couldn’t have done it without our willing helpers.


WE URGENTLY REQUIRE GOOD QUALITY BRIC A BRAC FOR OUR SHOP & EVENTS. Please have a spring ‘turn out’ for us and bring your unwanted items to the Sanctuary or shop – we and the cats would be very grateful. Unfortunately, we are unable to process anything very big such as furniture.

Waiting List

Over the past year or two, we have seen a marked increase in the number of people needing to re-home their cats because they are moving into rented accommodation where pets are not allowed.

This “no pet” rule has a massive impact on rescue centres like ourselves and its a real shame that people have to make this choice and part with a much loved pet.

Generally cats are very clean and non-destructive, so is there really a need for landlords to be so strict?

If you find yourself in this position and need to re-home your cat, please do not leave it to the last minute to re-home your pet as most rescue centres have a long waiting list so the sooner you add yourself to the waiting list the better.
